The Santa Clara County medical examiner's office has identified the pedestrian fatally struck by a commuter train just north of the San Antonio station Thursday evening.
Kevin Heaney, 60, was killed when a southbound train struck him just north of the San Antonio station at about 5:25 p.m. The medical examiner's office has not been able to determine Heaney's town of residence.
A final cause of death has not been determined.
Heaney was killed after southbound train No. 368 struck him at about 5:25 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25 just north of Mountain View's San Antonio station. Nobody on the train was injured.
The tracks were temporarily shut down in both directions. The northbound tracks reopened soon after and trains were single-tracked through the area, Caltrain spokesperson Christine Dunn said. Tracks were open in both directions by 7 p.m.
Caltrain also experienced major service disruptions earlier the same day when northbound train No. 101 struck an unoccupied car that had apparently been left on the tracks at Mary Avenue in Sunnyvale at about 5 a.m., Dunn said. No one was hurt.
"These incidents, including the tragic circumstances of this evening, are deeply troubling to Caltrain customers and staff and we regret the loss of life and the immense difficulties caused (to) individuals who depend upon the rail service," Caltrain spokesman Mark Simon said in a prepared statement.
This was the second fatality involving Caltrain this year.
